Re: Good News and an Apology: GD on the Internet Archive
OK, the aud downloads are more or less back as zips and lossless, etc.
The 1971-08-06 show does have good sound, thanks.
And as other threads mention, definitely the 1969-05-03. Vocals are low but the instruments are right in your face.
& another high quality aud from the Workingman's period is 1970-09-20
It was an audience tape that first turned me onto the GD- nothing unusual about that for many of us.
That tape was really primitive, yet still caught my ear - on a mono Craig cassette deck sitting on the grass in back of our high school, the taper was playing a previous night's Saint Stephen - I stopped and listened.
Thanks to that crude audience tape, I went to the next scheduled GD show, my first rock concert ever, April 1970, with Miles Davis supporting the Grateful Dead.
So, the week before Nov. 22 I spent a long day trying to find the "best" or at least my favorite available Saint Stephen off the Archive...
and came up with some beautiful versions.
"All he lost, he shall regain"
Let's hope so.
